This article shows that cultural ideals of traditional
Iroquois society have been preserved despite a long process of acculturation. Freilich
demonstrates this phenomenon by describing how in his choice of a relatively dangerous
occupation, structural steel work, the modern Mohawk male is able to achieve prestige that
is no longer available to him through warfare. The paper is divided into three parts; the
first presents a culture summary of the Mohawk during the early historical period, the
second part discusses environmental changes that took place after the arrival of European
settlers, and the third part discusses the Mohawk of the 1950s.
